Animal loving youngsters aged eight to 15 get the chance to get up close and personal to some furry friends during an hour's penguin and meerkat feeding. Keepers will lead them into the two enclosures, relating interesting facts about the creatures, before feeding them with the help of the youthful guests. Kids may also get a chance to handle some baby meerkats, depending on the season.
